Port. Funding has been beefed up for cattle producers to help transport their stock to mainland Tasmania.
Acting Premier Bryan Green said the State Government has offered short-term financial assistance to King Island beef producers to help transport their cattle to mainland Tasmania for processing.
Mr Green said some of the challenges arising from King Island’s abattoir closure are already being met including better preparation of cattle for transport by beef producers and the upgrading of the Stanley port.
Mr Green visited King Island to outline details of the $1.25 million package to be provided during the next 12 months.
